Emergent Diversity

JAMIE ARPIN-RICCI
Winnipeg : Canada


"Diversity is an increasingly important value within the emerging church movement. This commitment to diversity, not only in EC, but also increasingly in the Body of Christ, is a positive reflection of the health and growth of Christianity in the world. God is calling us even deeper.
"

Jamie identifies three themes that the emerging church has to take seriously if it is to be a missional movement.

This emerging church thing is dangerous! This month's visitors to the cafe both have discovered emerging thinking whilst being part of a more traditional worshipping community - will life ever be the same again?

[STORY/RFLECTION] 03.06
Feminine Voice

ERUVANDI

"I am an articulate, educated woman. I saw places that my gifting could be used for the glory of God. And slowly, but surely, as I became more acclimatized to being a Christian, I began to see there was but a limited sphere where I could acceptably use those gifts."

Eruvundi asks if the emerging church will finally offer a fresh approach to the role of women in the church.

...the tutor suggested that hymn singing was the point at which everyone could participate in the service... it doesn't seem like an appropriate level of participation to me...
